Tesla’s electric Model X adds sexy to the minivan


Tesla Model X

When one thinks of Tesla, they think of high-end electric vehicle performance. The company is known for putting out some of the best-performing, visually stunning vehicles available in the market. Now, Tesla is going for the family market with a minivan that goes 0-60 mph in 4.4 seconds.

According to CEO Elon Musk, there’s a market for the fastest minivan in the world, one that’s faster than a Porsche 911 Carrera… and that’s not even the performance version.

“With the Model X we’re addressing the rest of the SUV market and the minivan market,” Musk said in an interview with GigaOM. “We think there’s a huge market for anyone interested in a minivan or an SUV and actually wants more functionality, more style, and more performance – this is going to be the best product by far.”

Should Toyota or Honda dealers be worried? Probably not. With a price tag of around $50,000, it’s a notch above the competition. “Range will be a factor for potential buyers,” said Everett Davis at Pensacola Honda. “There won’t be enough made to make a dent in Odyssey sales.”
